Included are the Proclamations used in our celebration of the Divine Office today. Mary, Queen of Love, pray for us.

She is life as communion, life as thanksgiving, life as festival, life as glory.
(Thomas Merton)

The Blessed Virgin is the queen of heaven, she is merciful. And she is the mother of the Only-begotten Son of God. Nothing can so commend the greatness of her power and loving-kindness.
(Bernard of Clairvaux)

Mary is Queen in her service to God for humanity; she is also Queen of love who lives the gift of herself to God so as to enter into the plan of man's salvation. The title 'Queen' is thus a title of trust, joy, and love.
(Pope Benedict XVI)
